    It was fabulous! It was our anniversary-they greeted us with, "happy anniversary!" We were brought to a nice little table that was covered with rose petals and a framed message wishing us a happy anniversary. The food was amazing, and the service was impeccable. We totally enjoyed our evening and will return!

    They decorated our table with "wedding themed" confetti and a cute framed "Happy Anniversary" card. That was a sweet touch. We knew the prices were high, but the food was only average. Dessert was wonderful.

    While at the beach for vacation, we decided to go out for a nice dinner. We didn't want fried seafood. My wife is an amazing cook, so we were looking for something special. We found it at the Brentwood Restaurant in Little River. The restaurant was unique from its decor to its selection on the menu. It was definitely not your usual "beach restaurant". The staff was friendly. It had a nice relaxed atmosphere. Our waiter was fantastic. And most of all the food was great. As you might expect, some items we tried we loved. Others, although they were good, will be replaced by new choices next time. All in all, it was a wonderful dining experience and we will definitely visit The Brentwood again when we are in that area.

    Our recent dinner at the Brentwood was nothing less than fabulous! The grouper on the nightly specials menu was simply spectacular, The service was perfect, the wine wonderful - we cannot wait to go back! We also found out while there that if we belong to the wine club - we can take our own wine as long as it is not on their wine list! A winner all around!

    Dining at Brentwood was an outstanding experience. The food was exceptional and the service outstanding. James is a terrific server - right there when we needed him but not obtrusive or interfering. We can't wait for our next trip to the beach as it will most definitely include a meal at Brentwood.

    The restaurant is beautiful! Coming into this lovely, old White House we see gardens and hear the sound of a brook ... We were greeted by a refined man who seemed French. The Chef is actually French! The waiter asked us if we wanted tap, still or sparkling water..and then brought a petite glass of delicious watermelon juice. The menu is varied. Petit Plats are included at a very reasonable price. For example, seafood crepes for 17 dollars that my friend said were super. My friend had duck confit which he loved ( he is very fussy). I ordered the Beef Wellington but I must say, the filet did not have much taste. It was, of course, in a puff pastry, with fingerling potatoes and a delicious sauce and some haricots vert (gr. beans) All great!

    We introduced friends of ours to The Brentwood and they had a lovely time and enjoyed fabulous food. Service by James and Joe was superb. They are very attentive and ensure your dining experience is a good one. What can I say about the food. Awesome. The Brentwood is the only restaurant of its type in the area. This is the place to go when you can't face more fried sea food or another Italian restaurant. You will definitely return.

    I have eaten here several times. The Wine Club dinner is great, menu unexpected and preparation and presentation very pleasing. The owner is attentive to every detail. He visits every table and makes you feel like you are a guest. The Brentwood is the first on my list of places to take guests. I can expect well prepared food, friendly attentive service and prices that don't break the bank. They have a reasonably priced children's menu with several selections. Try it for yourself you will be pleased.

Escargot, vicyshisoi (sp), osso buco, steak and lobster tail, home breads all superb. The prices were moderate, The wine list more than adequate with good selections at various prices. The owners visited most in the dining room. A good find we will return.

    We wanted to treat some friends to a special evening and searched for just the right spot - thank goodness we found Brentwood! We made the pleasant 25 minute drive from Ocean Isle and had the best meal of the vacation. It was everything we hoped for and then some. Every dish we had was wonderful, the ambiance of the mansion is lovely, and our server (James?Joe?) really made the evening one to remember. Our friends were very impressed, and we will all be back!!

    Testing the waters of southern N Carolina, we were intriguided by the idea of French dining. The escargot was delicious; I require gf so I was apprehensive. The first out had bread crumbs-opps. But the server went back to the kitchen and the garlic cream sauce on my gf dish was great. The hollandaise on my grouper was perfect taste of lemon. Panna cotta with a rum sauce for dessert finished the evening.

    The salad was gritty. I asked for no pepper and he still put pepper on it. The she crab soup and green tomatoes were very good appetizers. My husband got the ahi tuna and his was very good. I got the shrimp and scallops, the asparagus on it was good and the sauce with noodles was very good. The shrimp was chewy and the scallops were not cooked properly. I let my husband have some and he spit it out. I left all my shrimp and scallops on my plate and the h girl picking up dishes didn't even bother to ask why or if i wanted a to go box. Like she already knew it was nasty. It was my husband's birthday so I'm glad his was good, but no we will not be going back.

    Dined on 7/1/2014
    We tried the Paris 4-course menu with wines selected by the chef, starting with the cod croquette which was excellent and vicysoise. Next was a salad with a light miso dressing (the dressing was definitely on the light side for our taste, but otherwise, an ideal palate cleanser). The main courses were duck confit and beef. Both were excellent, with the duck tender and flavorful and the beef cooked to perfection. Finally, we both had a superb creme brulee. The wines picked to accompany each dish, were excellent choices. We have been meaning to go to Brentwood for several years since we live on the Grand Strand. We are delighted that we finally went. We intend returning since there were several other things on the menu we would like to try.

    We tend to be a bit picked about food....at the Brentwood, we had a hard time choosing between the mouthwatering choices. I especially appreciated the "small" versions of many of the choices. I don't use many spices in my cooking, so we're often wary...but the flavor was so fresh and not overwhelming. The service was excellent and all staff was friendly and prompt. They encouraged us to walk around the restaurant which we did. It's quite lovely. We definitely have to go back to try some other dishes

    Nice location and expected a great experience for my wife's birthday. Instead we got a very unpleasant server. She ignored the kids. She did not review any of the specials. She gave my attitude about her lobster tail order, when my wife asked to see the menu again she replied "Oh wow" as if my wife was putting her out. The kids meal was a stuffed chicken breast, spinach and mushrooms. We spent 5 min removing the good stuff from inside so the kids would eat. Scallops and shrimp portion size small for $27. Disappointed at the service, find it ironic the place has a Best of Service Award, obviously this server was not part of that team. She made for a terrible experience. See the full review on Yelp.

    We could not have made a better choice for a quiet celebration of our 53rd wedding anniversary. When we had to change our reservation time, we received a positive, good humored response. From the friendly greeting at the door, through courteous, but not intrusive, attention during dinner, to the final pleasure of talking with owner/ chef Erique, our evening was relaxed and enjoyable. The european atmosphere in the old house setting was a rare experience in a town where noisy, seafood restaurants abound. The menu was varied enough to accommodate all tastes, and each item had the French flair that makes food memorable. We will certainly return, not just for a special occasion, but whenever in town.

    What could be better than having your French style food prepared by a true Frenchman with classic French cooking techniques! Fantastic sauces on locally sourced fresh ingredients. Plating was visually appealing matching the complexity of the flavours found in each dish. Timing was spot on despite it being a busy night for the restaurant. Overall great find in a quaint "converted old Victorian home" setting. Definitely recommend if you know and appreciate good food.
